DescriptionThe Female Closet takes an historical look at the world of 'high art' through the lives and work of three women artists. The film focuses on: turn of the century photographer Alice Austen, Hannah Höch, most famous for her Dada photomontages, and New York based Nicola Eisenman, wunderkind of the contemporary lesbian chic art scene. Each story poses fundamental questions about the (re)construction of history, class, sexuality, identity and identity politics.
